Tolling Bell"
WITH
May McAvoy and Bruce Gordon
A ROMANTIC DRAMA OF LOVE AND
MYSTERY IN LOUISIANA
"The tolling bell, it is the knell
That summons thee to Heaven or to Hell."
Shakespe'are.
To some the tolling bell peals the music of romance.
It stirs the heart to adventure. It calls the mind to wed
dings and to ghosts. In this house of mystery its echo
made a br-'ve girl, braver a fearless boy, bolder; made a
schemer money-mad; caused joy to a "ghost;" fear to a
darkey, and set a whole town in a turmoil.
